The Office A Benihana Christmas quotes

Dwight: Don’t worry, she’s dead … oh wait… he’s dead.

Dwight: I accidentally ran over it. It’s a Christmas miracle!

Dwight: Do we have any cayenne pepper in the kitchen?

Dwight: And circle gets the square.

Dwight: So can you watch this? I’m gonna get my carving knife out of the trunk.

Dwight: Once I brought in a duck to prepare for lunch and people got upset. Apparently they got attached to the duck and didn’t want to see it killed.

Dwight: He was already dead, and we Schrutes use every part of the goose. The meat has a delicious smoky rich flavor. Plus, you can use the molten goose grease and save it in the refrigerator, thus saving you a trip to the store for a can of expensive goose grease.
Jim: Wow. Win-win.
Dwight: Exactly, thank you, Jim.
Phyllis: I like goose. If it’s already dead, is it so crazy if we eat it?
Creed: That’s crazy. It’s crazy.

Toby: Clean it in your car.
Pam: I would like it off my desk.
Dwight: Oh, Pam. Take a chill pill.

Michael: Hey! I would like a nice slice of Christmas Pam. Side of candy Pams. And perhaps some Pam chops. With mint …
Pam: Can I help you Michael?
Michael: I’m looking for the toy drive box.
Pam: It’s behind you.
Michael: Okay … well, I need to put this bike in there. I hope it’ll fit, with all these little knickknacks …

Jim: Is that your old bike, Michael?

Michael: This is going to be the best Christmas ever. My girlfriend Carol is coming to our party tonight, and I have a little surprise for her. (Singing) I’ve got two tickets to paradise! Pack your bags, we’re leaving day-after-tomorrow! Um, taking her to Sandals, Jamaica, all-inclusive. All-inclusive. You know what that means. Right? Yeah. (Leers)

Jim: Oh, I think you’re supposed to put a toy in the box, Creed.

Michael: A Christmas Carol.

Michael: You’re about five hours early to the party. Oh, you’re such a blonde.

Michael: This is my girlfriend, Carol. This is just the front of her.

Michael: Ski-son’s Greetings.

Carol: This is so weird.

Jim: It’s a bold move to Photoshop yourself into a picture with your girlfriend and her kids on a ski trip with their real father. But then again, Michael’s a bold guy. Is bold the right word?

Michael: You need to think this through in Jamaica’s largest freshwater pool.

Michael: You walk out that door, and it is over.
Carol: I know.

Jim (reading Dwight’s file): “Last year, my boss, Michael Scott, took a day off, ‘cuz he said he had pneumonia, but really, he was leaving early to go to magic camp.”

Pam: You get to decide what his top secret mission is. Sorry I didn’t wrap it.

Jim: I feel like there’s a chance for me to start over. And if I fall back into the same kind of things I used to do, then … what am I doing?

Michael: I’d like everybody’s attention. Christmas is canceled.

Michael: Jim, take New Year’s away from Stanley.

Michael: Carol and I split up. Amicably.

Jim: Will they still air ‘Rudolph.’

Michael: It hurts my heart. It hurts my stomach. It hurts my arms.

Dwight: It appears we’re one bathrobe short.
Michael: Take it from Toby.

Angela: Phyllis, I need you to pick up green streamers at lunch.
Phyllis: I thought you said green was whorish.
Angela: No, orange is whorish.
Karen: Uh, so I had a couple of ideas to make the Stamford people feel more at home. Each year we have a Christmas raffle …
Angela: It would never work here.
Karen: Ok … um, another idea was karaoke …
Angela: No.
Karen: A Christmas drinking game …
Meredith: Yes.
Angela: God help you.
Karen: What?
Angela: These are all terrible ideas … and none of them are on the theme of “A Nutcracker Christmas.” I think you should leave.
Karen (laughing tentatively): You’re kidding.
Angela: You tried this out, and it’s clearly not for you. It’s time to go.

Dwight: Why don’t you just buy the whole song?

Michael: I don’t need to buy it, I just want to taste it.

Karen: Does anyone ever stand up to Angela?
Pam: I think one of her cats did once. She came in with scratches all over her face.

Pam: If you’re interested in the way more fun party, all the info can be found here on our more brightly colored flyer.

Kevin: I didn’t see where it was.

Jim: Could you please keep it down? I’m in session. I’ve determined this committee’s valid.

Dwight: Permission to join the Validity Committee.
Jim: Permission denied.

Andy: I can’t concentrate when I know you’re in pain, man.

Michael: C’mon, we’re going to Asian Hooters.

Ryan: I’m not feeling so well. I’ve got a ton of work to do here. MSG allergy, peanut allergy, I just ate there last night.

Jim: Wow, thanks for taking all the excuses, dude.
Ryan: Doctor appointment, car trouble, plantar warts, granddad fought in World War II. Use your head, man. I keep mine in here. Look alive, Halpert. Welcome back.

Michael: Bros before hos.

Michael: And then … and then suddenly she’s not yo’ ho no mo’.

Dwight: How can I be there for Michael if I’m here for Michael.

Angela: Pam, don’t tell her what to do! Phyllis.

Kevin: I think I’ll go to Angela’s party, because that’s the party I know.

Ryan: I miss the days when there was only one party I didn’t want to go to.

Angela: Your paychecks will be arriving as scheduled on Friday. And they will be in the correct amount that they are normally in.

Angela: Meredith, if you don’t come to my party, you will be very, very sorry.

Kevin: I hear Angela’s party will have double-fudge brownies. It will also have Angela.

Angela: Brownies. Cupcakes.
Kevin: Don’t push it.

Karen: Are we taking this too far? You know what, I don’t think we’re taking this far enough. (Looking at Pam) What?
Pam: I got goosebumps.

Angela: I don’t back down. My sister and I used to be best friends, and we haven’t talked in 16 years. Over some disagreement I don’t even remember. So … yeah. I’m pretty good.

Everybody: Darryl! Darryl! Darryl!

Cindy: Is he the hot one or the giant baby?

Angela: I don’t walk into your house and steal your Hello Kitty backpack.

Pam: In the name of Nutcracker Christmas.

Michael: My little gal over there. Babe-alectable.

Michael: You know how all waitresses look alike.

Michael: Are you going to tell me that Stevie Wonder doesn’t love his wife just because he’s not sure what she looks like?

Michael: Is she in the fridge? Where is she hiding?

Dwight: Monkey, this is Possum. Do you copy?
Angela: Copy, Possum. What’s your twenty?

Cindy: No … I have school.

Michael: I can’t believe I gave her my bike!
Jim: Yeah.

Jim: You just had a rebound.
Michael: A rebound.
Jim: Yeah. Which, don’t get me wrong, can be a really fun distraction, but, when it’s over, you’re left thinking about the girl you really like, the one that broke your heart.

Michael: Domo arigato, Mr. Scott-o.

Michael: It’s all-inclusive.

Oscar: Too soon.

Dwight (reading text message): “You have been compromised. Abort mission. Destroy phone.”

  1. Had I been drinking something, liquid would have been spewing out my nose when he marked that chick.

  2. I missed the first fifteen minutes, but from what I did see, that may have been the most far-out episode of The Office yet.

  3. omg, jim was sooo talking about himself.
    why didn’t oscar stay…nevermind, i don’t blame him.
    and poor toby. but pam was so sweet when she gave him a robe. aw.
    really great episode. ryan seemes more loose with kelly…or was he just drunk.

  4. WOW! That was AMAZING! I loved Kevin
    “I think I’ll go to Angela’s party because that is the party that i KNOW”

    and i love tyhe CIA!

  5. That was without a doubt the best ep this season. And probably in the top 5 of all time. So many laughout loud moments and finally every character was included in one show since casino night. I wish the office was always 1 hour long.
